Tips for Parents on Social Networking

  1. Learn about social networking and establish a social networking profile. If you are comfortable with social networking, it will be easier to talk with your child about it. Also, if you have a profile, you can "friend" your child and watch what she does online.
  2. Check your child's online profiles. "Friend" him and then regularly check to see what he's posting. If you see something that makes you uncomfortable, talk with him about it.
  3. Make sure your child's profile is age appropriate. The most popular social networking site is Facebook.
  • How many teens have been victims of cyberbullying?
  • What's the legal age for kids to use Facebook?
  • How often do teens give out personal information online?

Find answers to these questions and more at You'll also find helpful tips, discussion cards, and other resources to start the conversation about internet safety with your kids. And use #CyberSafe to join in on social media.
